4 Approaches To Help Your Lawyer Assist You To If you want a legal professional for any reason, you need to work closely together as a way to win your case. Regardless of how competent they are, they're gonna need your help. Here are four important methods to help your legal team help you win: 1. Be Totally Honest Or Higher Your lawyers need and expect your complete cooperation - no matter what information you're planning to reveal directly to them. Privilege means anything you say is saved in confidence, so don't hold anything back. Your legal team has to know all things in advance - particularly information another side could discover and surprise you with later. 2. Provide Meticulous Records Keep a regular and factual account of all the information pertaining to your case. Whether it's witnesses or payments being made, provide your attorneys because of the data they should help them win. 3. Arrive Early For Many Engagements Do not be late when you're appearing before a court and prevent wasting the attorney's time, too, by being punctually, every time. Actually, because you might need to discuss eleventh hour details or even be extra prepared for the case you're facing, it's a smart idea to arrive early. 4. Demonstrate You Have Your Act Together If you've been charged with any type of crime, it's important so that you can convince the court which you both regret the actions and they are making strides toward increasing your life. For example, if you're facing a DUI, volunteer for the rehab program. Be sincere and linked to the community the judge is presiding over. Working more closely with the legal team increases your chances of absolute success. Try these tips, listen closely to how you're advised and ultimately, you ought to win your case.

What Should I Look For In A Lawyer?
I Need A Lawyer To Represent Me And This Would Be My First Time Dealing With One.
First, you need to find out if the lawyer has experience in the type of case you're considering. Then you need to find out if the lawyer is someone with whom you're comfortable... is the fee something you're able to pay comfortably... is the lawyer someone who returns your calls promptly (believe it or not, this is the most frequent complaint clients have about lawyers!) is the person too busy to give personal attention to your case.
Then you have to decide if you trust the lawyer. If you've been promised a big win...run the other way. If you've been given a reasonable analysis of your case, what its weak points are as well as its strengths, then you're on the right track.
Miranda Rights In Fla.- Legal Question.?
When Is It Procedure To Read The Arrestee His Rights?
A.- Before Being Handcuffed?
B.-After Being Handcuffed?
C-Before Questioning ?
D. All Of The Above.
Should You Be Told What You'Re Being Charged With, During Time Of Handcuffing? What If They Won'T Tell You Your Rights Nor What You Are Being Charged With Until 30 Minutes Later?( After Being Escorted In The Back Of A Squad Car Downtown.)
It would be important to know if you're talking about an adult or juvenile arrestee. In my state, I'm required to provide a Miranda admonition to a juvenile immediately upon arrest, whether or not I intend to question them. Florida may have a similar law.
Florida may also have some specific state law that deals with this issue, though I would not think so. Constitutionally, you are only required to be "Mirandized" if you are in custody or the functional equivalent thereof, and if you are being questioned about the crime you were arrested for.
Your question leaves out other possible options. For instance, handcuffs may have nothing to do with a Miranda admonishment, or they may have everything to do with it. And if you are not in custody, Miranda does not come into play before or during questioning of any kind.
And the "all of the above" thing doesn't make much sense in light of the first two possible answers...it would suggest that I'd have to read an admonition to you before I put the handcuffs on you and after I put them on...twice in the space of less than 15 seconds.
Being told what you're "charged with" (and really, you should say "arrested for" as the police make arrests and the prosecutors charge defendants) has nothing to do with Miranda. In my state, I'm supposed to tell you what I'm arresting you for unless it's obvious under the circumstances. There is no specific direction as to when I'm supposed to tell you and I doubt there is in Florida, either.
If "they" won't tell you your rights or why you've been arrested for 30 minutes, I'd say it means nothing more than they didn't tell you your rights or what you were arrested for, for 30 minutes. It's always been possible to be arrested and sent to court without hearing a Miranda admonition from the police because, in the absence of a state law requiring it, Miranda does not come into play unless you are being questioned about the crime you were arrested for. No point in reading it to you if you're not going to be questioned.
How Much $ (Approx) For A Real Estate Lawyers Services (Michigan)?
We Got One Quote From A Lawyer Of $450 (Flat Fee)
He Didn'T Go In To Detail About What All Is Included.....
What Do They Generally Do Other Than Make Sure That The Purchase Agreement Is Fair?
Do They Have To Be A &Quot;Real Estate&Quot; Lawyer? Would Any Lawyer Work?
Can/Will Your Bank/Credit Union/Mortgage Company Analize The Agreement And Make Sure All Legalities Are Taken Care Of For You?
Are you a buyer or seller?
Will the attorney be acting as your real estate buyer agent & preparing your sales contract for you to present to the seller yourself, or will the attorney call the sellers in to talk to them?
If you are a seller, will the attorney merely be looking at any offers a buyer makes on your home & advising you how to counter offer them? Who is going to negotiate and prepare the necessary papers if there are problems with the structural integrity of the house?
There are many fields of practice in law. A contract or real estate attorney would be best, but be advised, they don't work in real estate sales everday like real estate agents do. They may advise you of things that are totally not suited to the specific area you are in, nor what current market trends and consessions are, referrals to decent structural inspectors or reputable lenders, etc.
A bank is only concerned about providing you with a loan on a qualified home and your ability to repay it.
What you need is a real estate professional, rather than trying to save a couple thousand off a sales price which could cost you twice as much because you won't have someone knowledgable in the industry of real estate sales watching out for your best interests.
Could I Get Any Financial Aid?
I Will Be A Freshman In College Next Year. My Parents Are Divorced So It Was Decided That My Mother Will Be The Sole Provider For All Of My Expenses. My Mother Bought A Home For $700,000 In 2007, But Because Of The Market The Homes Around Us Have Been Dropping To $400,000 Sometimes $300,000. However, I Am Worried That My Mom Makes Too Much For Me To Get Financial Aid...She Makes $120,000 A Year And Pays Around $40,000 In Taxes. I Tried A Efc Calculator And It Came Out To $24,000. I Thought My Efc Would Be Much Lower Than That Because Even Though She Makes &Quot;A Lot&Quot; Of Money She Has A Mortgage To Pay With No Equity. So, She Basically Really Has No Money....
Is That Efc Pretty Much What I'M Expected To Pay?
Sorry If It'S A Stupid Question Since I Calculated My Efc, I Just Don'T Understand This Whole Financial Aid Or Know How The Efc Calculated. Oh, She Also Doesn'T Want To Take Out Anymore Loans Since She Has A Big Loan On The Home We Live In (She Bought This Home Because The High School I Am Attending Is A Good School) She Also Just Got This Job That Pays Her That Much Last Year, So She Really Isn'T That Rich.
Okay, Poke, let's see if I can help:
First of all - we'll start with the bad news, but I promise it gets better.
Your mom's house - and the falling property values that are afflicting so many people all across this country - that will have absolutely no impact on your aid eligibility. Many, many parents have mortgages - and the fact that your mom devotes a significant percentage of her income to paying hers is not relevant to the question of your financial aid.
It's like this, Poke. Your mom's house represents a choice, on her part, of one of the things that you she could have done with her income. She could have chosen to buy a luxury yacht, she could have chosen to buy a Lamborghini, she could have chosen to buy diamonds and jewelery - or she could have chosen to buy you a very expensive college education.
No one tells your mom "this is what you must spend your money on", because it's her money, and she's free to do what she wants with it - as long as it's legal. That's one of the liberties of living in this country - and it applies to houses and to schooling.
So she chose to buy an expensive house and devote a lot of her income to her mortgage - that was her choice - and all the more power to her. However, the fact that she made that choice, and not the choice to buy a much cheaper house - or rent - so that she could pay all of your college bills - well - that decision to buy doesn't qualify you for extra financial aid. Your mom's ability to pay is still going to be based on her income and some of her assets - the FAFSA does not take bills or other financial obligations into account.
If your mother's income is 120K, it almost goes without saying that you're not going to qualify for need-based financial aid. Those forms of aid are only intended for - and available to - the neediest of families. These aren't the families that have a very high mortgage that wipe out a good portion of their income - these are the families that don't make a lot of money to begin with.
Students get real hung up on their EFC scores, but to be honest, if your score isn't 4041 or less, it hardly matters what it is. Applicants with scores of 4041 or below qualify for the various special forms of need-based financial aid - applicants with scores above 4041 do not.
If you don't qualify for need-based aid - well, most of of your fellow students say "welcome to the club". Only about 1/3 of all applicants qualify for need-based aid. That means that you - like 67% of your classmates are eligible for the Federal Student Aid program's exceptional lending programs.
The federal loans are available to YOU - without any concern for your income, your assets, or your credit history. The loan is your loan - in your name (not your mother's), and you will not be asked for a cosigner (ever). The interest rate is low and fixed, and your payments aren't due until you've been out of school for 6 months.
Of course, there has to be a catch - and there is. The Stafford lending program has a strict annual borrowing limit - for you - as a dependent freshman - that'll be only $5500. Next year, you'll be able to borrow $6500, and in your 3rd and 4th years, the max goes up to $7500.
You're right - that's not a lot of money - but that's all that most students get. If your mom absolutely refuses to borrow to assist you, you're going to have to target a very inexpensive school. The expensive schools are for students who can contribute a lot of out-of-pocket money, or those who can nail down those big dollar scholarships.
You can look at the private loans to supplement your Stafford borrowing, but you are going to need a highly creditworthy cosigner. The lenders just aren't making big dollar loans to student applicants with no income and no credit history.
If your mom will help, tell her to look into the PLUS loan program - the government will help her borrow as much as you need to afford your school. But if not - I'm afraid you'll have to look at schools that you can afford with $5500 in borrowing, plus whatever other money you have available to you.
Can Jehovah'S Witnesses Practice Law Or Be A Lawyer?
I Understand Trey Can Not Be Part Of The Government
We cannot take part in political debates/electing/etc, that side of the government. However we recognized the benefits we enjoy due to having the government (freedom of speech, religion, nice roads, etc.) and therefore can work within the government. In my hall, there is 1 brother and a sister who work for the DEP (department of environmental protection.) as well as some who work in road construction. You know the little ruts they put along the highway so that when you go off the road it makes the sound to warn you? A brother who now goes to the Mt. Sterling congregation in Kentucky invented the machine used to make them while he was working for the government. My father runs a sawmill and in order to help conserve the environment all of his logging is overseen by the DEP and the forestry association and the 700 acres of timber land him and his brothers own are enrolled in the Clean and Green act to help work in line with the governments efforts to promote healthy forests.
There are JW's who are lawyers, and who practice law, just as there are JW's working in many different fields and government departments.
Looking For A Probate Lawyer?
I Cannot Afford A Lawyer That Charges $100-$250 An Hour! Need Advice On Estate Managing, Name Change On Deed Etc. Please Help Anyone?
uh...costs are charged to the estate for a lot of that.
If you can't read the information made available by the probate office, work the phone book; but $100 an hour is probably a good going rate. What does a good electrician or plumber charge?
